January 29, 2018

The buzz from the Escambia County is the Board of County Commissioners may have to settle a sexual harassment claim regarding a female professional firefighter who was repeatedly subjected to harassment from her male counterparts.

The harassment allegedly happened at several stations. Instead of punishing the offenders, she was moved to another station each time. Details of the harassment will be released soon.

    Sexual harassment needs to be dealt with aggressively. Failing to do so causes an infection that destroys an organization.
